Well, I just have to say this - THIS IS TOWER-TALK, NOT the ENVIRO-WACKO list.
Somehow I just knew that TOO MANY people would spew QRN crap about recycling,
enviro-CRAP. I get tired of it. I posted what I do and what many
others/farmers do. Many farmers pour their oil onto their fence posts so they
don't have to re-fence due to rust. And we don't care about the enviro-babble
of this VALDEZ-crap and thousands of gallons of oily drinking water. It just
doesn't happen. And don't give me numbers to TRY an convince me of anything.
Give me proof from WHAT YOU HAVE EXPERIENCED - REAL TIME ! Not numbers from
someone you don't know.
I have oil wells on my propity and many millions of barrels of OIL below me.
How many gallons of water will that RUIN ?!?
Now, for my personal oil change, I don't put sh8 back into the enviro as you
suggest. I pour it back into the fuel tank of my diesel truck and drive with it
Now simply put, all you enviro-wackos GO AWAY.
If you wanna blab about enviro, go to the enviro list or fall off your tower.
We're talking about/answering questions of practical tower stuff.
And for some reason, someone (like ALL of you) conveniently ignored my comment
about BOILED LINSEED OIL/ZIEBART preventing rust/oxidation.
Let's get back on topic.

I don't know if it's still posted, but at one time "they" used to say
that each year do-it-yourself oil changes put more oil into the
environment than the Exon Valdese oil spill. Of course back in the old
days we put the stuff out in the gravel road, and the county would spray
the stuff on the roads along with brine. Those gravel roads would get
